Two of my favorite decor colors are red and black. I have black chairs in my kitchen and antique white cabinets. I love that combination. I have black lampshades in our living room with a few touches of red here and there.
I was watching Fixer Upper, one of my favorite shows on HGTV, a few weeks ago. Jo had found some beautiful red pendant lights while antiquing. I loved the finished look!
